That Sweet Old Town Waltz

 

Once again, with the promise of spring in the air,

Come memories of love long ago,

A three-quarter tune from a far away June,

We waltzed, and the pleasures of youth made us know

that this

Never could end, and the hours we’d spend

Together were magic come true;

Oh, those days of renown in that dear sweet old town,

Recall now the love that we knew.

 

 

Now and then, when the hopes of the summers we shared

All merge in one sweet memory,

The leaves of the trees sway like lace in the breeze,

We walk hand in hand to a sweet melody

while the

People pass by, comes a tear to the eye

For dreams that would never come true;

Oh, those days of renown in that dear sweet old town,

Recall now the love that we knew.

 

 

Loving still, though the chill of cold autumn descends

On hearts that were happy and gay,

The song wanders on but the harmony’s gone,

The dance so long ended, your face slips away

as I

Treasure the strains of a haunting refrain,

Of magic that could not come true;

Oh, those days of renown in that dear sweet old town,

Recall now the love that we knew.

 

 

For Paul and for Mayme

and for cast and crew

and for Frankfort

that sweet old town

with love
